More than two dozen education, business and community leaders in Mohave County were in attendance. They heard about the importance of people in Mohave County helping the state ensure that 60% of adults, age 25-64, hold a certificate, professional license, or degree by the year 2030.
The Achieve60AZ 2019 Attainment Report includes valuable information about reaching this goal.
Many in attendance have also requested the Power Point Presentation that includes local educational facts and statistics that were presented by MCC and ASU-Havasu.
Other speakers included Kingman Mayor Jen Miles, Havasu Chamber President & CEO Lisa Krueger, ASU-Havasu Student Tristan Bartels, and MCC Nursing Student Sunshine Boylan.
Miles and Krueger spoke about the importance of government, education, business and industry working together to create an educated workforce.
Bartels spoke about the value of attending MCC and then transferring to ASU-Havasu to earn his bachelors degree.
Boylan talked about how MCC is helping her improve her life. She was a high school dropout who earned her GED and then started in the Nursing program at MCC. She is now an All Arizona Academic team member and will transfer her associate degree to NAU where she will have tuition covered as she earns her bachelors in nursing.
